  1. Hello all, the meeting is this Saturday (21st), and we're pushing back the start to 11:00 and going to 12:30. We will be meeting on Skype. Since we take a break from meeting in December this is the last club meeting of 2020. We will be having our Thanksgiving-for-Christmas-in-November event at this meeting, and as such only club members are allowed to attend. Looking forward to seeing all who can make it! Thanks, Arthroverts
  2. Blaberus I would think is also an option, as they require a moist environment and in my experience often will hollow out the exoskeletons of dead specimens. Thanks, Arthroverts
  3. I agree with Hisserdude, it really does depend on the species, as Blattodea is such a diverse order that what may be true for one species or genus may be fatal for another. Case in point: most Perisphaerinae as compared to most Panesthiinae. Thanks, Arthroverts
  4. Hello, welcome to the forum! I am not familiar with the specific nutritional values of B. dubia vs. B. lateralis, but considering how many people use strictly B. lateralis for their specimens it can't be significant enough to pose a problem. What temperature are you keeping them at? Roaches will eat less if kept at cooler temperatures. The last question I do not know; I suppose it's possible? Hope this helps, Arthroverts
  5. I was more so curious about just the general vibe being searched for. Generally if a group is set to be casual serious conversation will rarely crop up with any regularity. Thanks, Arthroverts
  6. What sort of chat group? For breeding and serious husbandry discussions? More so casual roach conversations? Other? Thanks, Arthroverts
  7. Hello all, the October meeting will be on the 17th (Saturday), from 10:00-11:30 AM, on Skype.The SD October meeting will be on the 18th (Sunday), from 4:30-6:00 PM, on Skype.I'd like to talk to everyone about a few things as we head into November, such as new club T-shirts, club events, meeting in person again, recruiting new members and member involvement, etc.Looking forward to seeing all who can make it! Thanks, Arthroverts
  8. Well, not for "pet" purposes, but for "education" it certainly is possible ;). Thanks, Arthroverts
  9. Welcome Martin, glad to have you join us! Thanks, Arthroverts
  10. Wow, this is fantastic news for the hobby! The light coloration on the underside of the abdomen is rather interesting. Please update us if you are able to get an ID, though I wonder if it is an undescribed species. Have you measured them at all? How large do they get? Thanks for sharing, Arthroverts
  11. Roach Crossing is back up. Apparently Kyle was just switching it over to a new hosting service. Thanks, Arthroverts
  12. I'd second Blaberus. You could do some nice large pieces of bark and keep a good size colony going, and there are few things more pleasing than picking up a piece of bark and seeing dozens of wings clustered together. You would have to do a fair number of Therea to make it worth it but those would also look cool to see running around. Thanks, Arthroverts
  13. Forgot to mention, the San Diego Chapter of the club is also up and running (led by @Dragozap), the September meeting for the chapter will be on the 20th (Sunday), from 4:30-6:00 PM, on Skype. Meeting link coming soon. Thanks, Arthroverts
  14. I agree there, the site had a bunch of great information and photos. Thanks, Arthroverts
  15. Sorry for the break in posting meetings, been busy. The September meeting will be the 19th, from 10:00-11:30 AM, on Skype. Meeting link available to those interested in attending. Thanks, Arthroverts
